Update – Scott Walker Fined By NHL

This from NHL.com,

RALEIGH, NC — Hurricanes forward Scott Walker has been fined $2,500 for an incident that occurred at the 17:13 mark of the third period of Game 5 against the Boston Bruins. There will be no additional punishment assessed.

“We are satisfied with the league’s ruling,” said Hurricanes President and General Manager Jim Rutherford. “After our team received several punches throughout the series leading up to Game 5, it was a matter of time before one was going to be thrown back.”

“I accept the league’s decision,” said Walker. “Based on what was said on the ice as I was dropping my gloves, it was my understanding that I was engaged in an altercation.”

What are your thoughts on this? Was this enough punishment?

  1. $2500, quite the slap on the wrist. Walker will be out of caviar for a few weeks while Ward might need surgery. The league’s perplexing judicial system strikes again…
    His quote was strange, though. Did Ward provoke him, then back down? Hmm.
